Accountability! Boo-yah!

The funniest part of the scarce isotope clusterfuck:

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq and Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt issued a joint statement saying they are disappointed the repairs will be delayed. They said the shutdown will result in a significant shortage of medical isotopes in Canada and around the world this summer.

“I have directed AECL to give paramount priority to bringing the Chalk River reactor back to service as quickly and safely as possible and will hold AECL accountable to that end,” Ms. Raitt said in the statement.

Yes, that would be Conservative MP Lisa Raitt, promising that, by God, she's going to be holding someone accountable.

I think I just wet myself.
